Jim--
That Thompson avatar looks too cool. I like the composition! I was going to comment about the other avatar, but I didn't know how close you were attached to it. It reminded me of either a sea creature or my cat, at least when my cat is walking away from me. tongue.gif

Creating a new forum for each model would be over kill, but not a form for Semi and one for Full Autos. I believe that would be proper.

Nick,
I think you should have phrased the question as separate boards for full and semi, not one for each model.

I just noticed there are two Browning Message Boards. One for full auto and one for semi.
If they can do it, so can we for the Thompson. tongue.gif

Hello all, I say leave the board as is, since there are many of us who can only legally own the semi, yet would love to own full-auto (and are learning a great deal by being a part of this association of like-minded individuals). I, for one, would like to move to a full-auto friendly state, yet, for the present, will remain in N.Y. to fight Chuck, Hillary and their ilk. ph34r.gif Please, leave well enough alone. ohmy.gif
Regards, Walter

It would appear that the Majority of Members prefer to leave the Board As Is. I couldn't agree more....

Chris,
I don't think a separate board would hurt your T-shirt sales.

Oh, Arthur! I was just having some fun at your expense. Seriously, if they do get split, I agree they don't need to be set up by various makes or models. Still, I hate to see us all split down the middle (or 95/5).

And, according to Nick, he's only sold 4 shirts (I believe two of them were he and I). BUY SHIRTS! It only helps supports the boards. And, contrary to what you think, I don't make a dime on them. Though I am hopeful when the thongs undies come out next week.

BTW, how come we never get to hear about your Thompson? Pictures! We'd love to see pics. Share... And you need a dorky Avatar like the rest of us.

How's this for an idea, have a S/A and F/A icon that we can tag our posts with if it might apply. Just a thought, I get to fire both although I shoot the semi more. I do peruse the other boards, the grease gun one to get rid of some mags and the Sten one once one of my friends got one and I got to shoot it, or as the most recent case may be about got shot by it. I've never seen an M3 grease gun or thompson dropped but can tell you from experiance if a sten get knocked off a table BAD things can and do happen.

BB smile.gif

It's bad enough that the politicians are trying to divide and concqor with so called asalt weapons... ( Mrs. Brady's mouth should be registered) we don't need to help them by subdeviding ourselves. I feel lucky to get to shoot the F/A model even if I have to go out of state, I own a semi but I sure would like see the FAQ board done, seems like some new people would ask the same questions every couple of months.

Chris,
I definitely still have one foot planted in the last century. I do not possess the new camera tech capable of inputing images on a computer. When I finally break down my resistance to this new photo technology, I will post pics of Colt 28N SMG on the photo board. Perhaps a shirt depicting Ursula Andress (circa 1966) brandishing a Chicago typewriter might improve sales?...Just a libidinous thought.

Arthur:

Yes, Daguerreotype bad, digital good! Drag that foot into the 21st century; I look forward to some pics one day. (Actually I, too, am dragging myself...slowly...away from my old Fujichromes and Kodachromes).

Ursula Andress eh? Hmmmm.....

Interesting thought. Sgt: can you help?
